Very good and encouraging

As the mother of a newly diagnosed child with Fragile X, I found this book very encouraging. It doesn't hide the difficulties of life with a child with special needs, but she reminded me that there is hope. It was a fairly easy read. I think I finished it in one day.

Not Just for Special Needs Parents

First off, I'm a bit biased as Elizabeth is my sister-in-law and Zack is my nephew. But even so, I was wasn't expecting to relate much with Elizabeth except in terms of family history and common experiences. I found however that my wife and I had shared many of the same frustrations, worries and anxieties with our own three kids, albeit on a much smaller scale. My point is that I think all parents and even would-be parents would get something out of this book. They will relate to much of Elizabeth's story and at the same time will gain valuable perspective on special-needs families. I'd also say this book is a must for any child care professional. Finally, it's a great read! Elizabeth has a very rich, dynamic and engaging writing style that draws you in. I could barely put it down and finished it in two sittings. Get a copy for yourself and one for a freind!
